Okay, I had to go refresh my memory. The command "chkconfig swat on"
edits /etc/xinetd.d/swat to change the "disable" option, perhaps
easier for the non-techies than editing the file, but then again
system-config-services might be even easier to use, and points out
that you need to deal with xinetd.. The default CentOS-configuration
(at least the one for 4.4 I just installed), has "only_from" set to
127.0.0.1. I don't think I'd want wide access to it (like if I had a
wireless LAN), but if the original requester already has webmin
running it may not matter.
